FO: Buzzbee

Pattern Buzzbee by Woolly Wormhead

I love knitting things for newborns, they get finished so quickly. I don't have all that much time for knitting and this hat only took me a few days of a few rows here and a few rows there. I'm really pleased with it and I can't wait to try it on an actual baby, for the moment I have to do with a rather fetching bright green football which has roughly the same circumference as a newborn's head.

The yarn I used was some leftovers of an Aran weight from Yarn Undyed which I dyed in a variegated purple to make a scarf for my SIL a couple of Christmases ago. I actually dyed a second skein darker shades of purple and striped them. Seeing as how I'd really enjoyed knitting Buzzbee I decided to go ahead and knit the leftovers from the second skein into another hat from the same book. I went for Tubey as it called for the same gauge. I think this one is going to knit up equally fast and I hope I love it just as much.

Well, you have the Little Man Seal of Approval (patent pending). I was reading/scrolling and he saw the photo with the football and he said, "ooh, pretty!"

It was adorable. And the hat is, too :)
